You are smoking some good stuff bro. Since I used paracord on 2 builds and I have MDPC right now for my next build, MDPC is WAY BETTER. It looks a feels just right, some much easier to sleeve with it. Paracord looks nice but its not used in the top systems for a reason. But to each there own.

Agreed. I can't stand paracord, yeah it can be used for sleeving but it's not meant for it. MDPC has an amazing weave pattern with gorgeous vibrant colors, top notch quality. Even their screws and other cable routing bits are top notch.

It is not quite as you describe with it being in place of the lower pair of 120's, this setup actually works very well and doesn't obstruct anything or hinder the side cover removal.

hmmm yeah sorry for that, was about to hop out, quickly went through the two or three pages there so I didn't really read what he was talking about, just reminded me of yours ^^.

Just a preview of the front vent, still needs to be cleaned up and painted but I figured I'd show it.

.earlier today I was sitting on my patio and saw my neighbor doing some work in his garage, I happen to notice there was a flat screen tv sitting on the floor, I hemmed and hawed about it for a few minutes and thought GO FOR IT, so I asked him "hey Roy what's with the tv there?" he says "it's my sons tv and he broke the HDMI input on the back and can't get it to work" so I said " what are you going to do with it?" him "we are just going to get rid of it" me "can I have a look at it?" him "sure if you're good at fixing these things, the guy at Bestbuy said it would cost about $300 to fix it but if you want it and can fix it, it's yours" me "cool thanks Roy I'll let you know what happens" So I bring it into the house, hook up the power, hook up the component cables for my cable box, turn on the power and bingo it works!! so the next thing I do is check the HDMI inputs (there are 2 of them by the way) the first one was no good the second one works like a dream for my DVD player. What an awesome day I got a 42" Smasung LED flat screen for free. EPIC thumb.gif

Hope everyone is having a great day .....I know I did biggrin.gif

They are the best, when you get free stuff that people think its messed up and it actually ain't. something similar happen to me with a 26 inch monitor i got.
They ask me if it was worth fixing I told them it could go upwards of $150 to get it fixed. she told me yeah that's what the repair guy told me, and she gave it to me because it was a 26 monitor that I use to have and loved. so I got it home turned it on and it turned on but, 2 seconds later turned right back off. so I checked on the net and it was a capacitor on the power supply cost me 8 dollars to replace it. And it's been working flawlessly ever since. 262

Yeah I'm going to have to do the same or something similar to mine right now i had to take off the top cover of the phantom because the mesh really restricts air flow. i think i just gonna change or modify the top one for the 200mm fans to breath better.

Ever thought of cutting out an area on the back of the top plastic cover ? like the whole on the bottom of the front panel but at the back and maybe bigger. I just noticed an area looked like it was begging me to cut it out (there's a rectangle and all xD).

wow. never noticed that, nice find I'm going to cut the out then see how air flow is after word's should make a noticeable difference!
post #11470 of 15204
I don't know whether it'll make great difference or not but yeah, it's definitely something to try.

Just went to the car part store (it's like a minute or two on foot from my place tongue.gif) and took a couple of photos of some stuff just so I could post them here and ask you what you think and if it'll do ^^ :
450

450

450

450

I intend to paint every little bit of black plastic the case has (hdd brackets, dvd frame, black lines, fan controller, usb/jack part, fan frames, fans). Will that amound of sand paper be enough ?

I also intend to paint every black metal (pci, dvd, meshes, screws), can I use the same products for both or will I have to buy more stuff ?

I couldn't find any adhesion promoter so I'll probably do without.

I'd like the plastic to look as it does now, will those products allow that ?

Photos were taken with a Samsung Galaxy S so yeah, they're not the best possible quality ^^
